Hi I just joined today to tell everyone that X Band Radar is alive and well.
I encountered X Band in Tennessee just North of Nashville on Saturday the 7th of Feb 09. The State police were using it. Second one came between Cincinatti and Columbus, Ohio, again the Ohio State Police were using it. The third was again by Ohio State Police on 71 south of Cleveland. Turn X band back on. I just purchased the Escort 9500ix and did not turn it off to see how many times it falsed compared to my Bel RX65. There is a world of difference in falsing, advantage Escort. The X band detection was obvious with nothing else around and the distance was aprox 1.5 miles. on two of the three encounters. The one in Tennessee was a little more difficult because the Trooper was using X band and then all of a sudden Ka band went nuts and back to x band again. As I drove by the Trooper, x band went to full alert and then he switched to ka band for a second and back to x band.
